Stoll has welcomed an international delegation including Veterans’ Ministers from around the world to meet Veterans in London. Ministers from the British Government, Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand discussed the bespoke housing and employment support that helps ex-Servicemen and women lead independent lives.
The delegation toured Stoll’s main housing scheme which is home to 150 Veterans, many of whom have experienced mental illness and physical injuries as a result of their Service. The Ministers met Stoll residents and heard about the importance of having a stable home and access to employment. Ministers also heard about the work of The Poppy Factory, a charity Stoll works closely with who help ex-Service men and women with disabilities into meaningful and sustained employment.
Stoll Chief Executive, Ed Tytherleigh, said: “I am delighted to welcome Ministers to Stoll and to show them the homes and support we offer. By providing social housing and support to Veterans in the greatest need, people can make an effective transition from the Armed Forces into civilian life. By intervening early, we can help prevent unnecessary homelessness and work with our partners to get people back into training and paid work.”
